DRS & Power Units head the F1 unpopularity list? (courtesy: Ferrari)q
In our first episode of the 2021 Formula 1 season, Mithila and Kunal look back at Formula 1’s last decade and discuss the most-unpopular additions to the sport.

This includes the hasty introduction & dropping of the elimination-based qualifying system from 2016, the double points on offer for the 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Formula 1’s continued struggles to find the correct racing tyre and more.

Our hosts go as far as labeling the DRS (Drag Reduction System) and the hybrid-turbo power units – both introduced in the last decade, as most-unpopular introductions to Formula 1.

Tune in!
